Jake the Peg


Is it possible for a tent peg to actually look cool? Is it possible for a tent peg to gain a cult follwing? It appears so. Please consider my recent aquisition of a set of six as my joining fee.

Yep great pegs they hold really well, mine are a nice purple colour.

Nielsen - I'm carrying four of the beasts for my Laser Comp (main end guys and the lateral pole hood ones) just to keep it secure up on the Hardangervidda. They look pretty sturdy! The rest of the tie-out points I'll use nice Vargo Ti's.

They're 16 gr. a piece or the whole set is sixteen gram? My tent is on its way, but it will take a while to arrive =) I'm so excited, can't wait for it!

Hendrik - 16 grams a piece. Proper pegs for mountain tops, not the bent bicycle spokes that come with the Laser Comp! :-)

Well, they're cheap so I just might get a few, as I plan to sleep on some Fjell tops in the autumn.

another convert, but why stop at 6?

John - they're so purdy. I might have to get some more just to give to friends as gifts!

Hendrik - at that price you can't go wrong.
